3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Stone O’Side. Pours clear amber with a froth of white foam. Aroma is ginger with underlying hop bitterness, minimal pine, and a clean malt backbone. Taste is ginger from start to finish with the bitter hops and pine from the base beer mixing well with the ginger. The ginger seems to slightly heighten the hop bitterness. Clean mouthfeel. As advertised it’s a pale ale with ginger. Well done.

On tap at Stone 17th anniversary party. Dark golden in color, clear, with an off-white head. Ginger and caramel on the nose, pretty much the same in the flavor. A nice bitterness too. Full body, nice carbonation. Long finish with caramel and a good dash of ginger. Not a very nice experiment. 130816

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Blue Palms. Excellent foam. Sheets of lacing. Nose is fresh strawberry, shortcake. Looks like most of the tap beers on tap today at Blue Palms smelled like this and even tasted like strawberry. Apparently someone skipped tap cleaning this afternoon. Taste is woody, dry, strawberry piling on thanks to dirty tap lines from apparently a strawberry beer tap takeover. Despite this, the beer is drinkable with hints of ginger spice in the backend. Would like to try a cleaner version.
